Appoint A Pediatric Oncologist to the National Cancer Advisory BoardPlease sign this petition to urge President Obama and National Cancer Institute Director, Harold Varmus, to appoint a pediatric cancer specialist to the National Cancer Advisory Board in order to give a voice to all children fighting cancer!
The National Cancer Advisory Board is the advisory council for the National Cancer Institute. The board helps set the strategic direction for the NCI and has direct input on grant and funding decisions.
National Cancer Advisory Board Members are appointed directly by the President. Currently, there are no pediatric oncologists on the panel.HOW CAN OUR CHILDREN RECEIVE THE FUNDING THEY DESERVE WHEN THERE IS NO ONE REPRESENTING THEM AT THIS TABLE? BE THEIR VOICE TODAY AND SIGN AND SHARE THIS PETITION!
